“Cliffjumper” ION buggy

Ion Cruiser added 3 weeks ago

After the releasing of new wheels, a lot of different setups have been explored. Dual ION buggy is among one of the most popular concepts.

The large hitbox of wheels some how lower the possibility of armament placement, the current placement of ION on this bot is the most efficient way to cover front, above, side and to some extent back side.

The choice of wheel type is based on the idea of redundancy, although larger wheels give you more speed and hp, but once you lose 1 or 2 of them, the bot can not drive straight.

A hover is installed inside to provide stability while the bot is the air, when climbing stop push forward and the edge of hill top, so you wont flip yourself.

A bit bricky if you remove all the guns on it ^^' but the design is still pretty nice :)

I have to say the concept layout is ugly, but other placements of ION are less practical. This may be the best I can do for this general layout :b

I did, two drawbacks: the balancing issue obviously; the other is front ion can't shoot side well and can't shoot back at all, on a movement type like wheel, this gives more trouble since you can't turn at spot.

You know, that's kinda funny. I was just messing with IONs on the new wheels as well, but with a different orientation. I know you have to maximize your CPU on a design like this, but I feel like upgrading the lasers to devastators would help you at better countering enemies at range. Have you tried experimenting with larger wheels on a sloped design? I've found that that protects them seemingly better on its own, and that would improve your closing speed towards bringing your ion's to bear. Just my two cents though, this design appears to do the best that it can with some of the limitations that the new, large wheels bring.

Hi thx for the input. I have already change the laser to epic one in CRF upload, they are more useful for sure. As for the sloped design, the uneven height of wheels will make the bot bump off the ground when moving backward, which potentially flips the vehicle during heat of battle.
